Zeynep Kartal’s debut AW14 collection is bursting with opulent glamour and Hollywood sparkle. Kartal’s admiration of Hollywood’s leading ladies is reflected on the catwalk with show stopping results. Heavily sequined gowns, mesh insert cocktail dresses and directional two piece suits, complete with velvet and sequin trims ooze old-school glamour. Luxurious silk, lace, crepe georgette and mesh materials lend themselves perfectly to each lavish design.  

Nipped in waists, strapless and plunge front looks add to the overwhelming elegance of the collection. An autumnal colour palette or burgundy, teal, ivory and black combined with metallic detailing in gold pewter create a rich and dramatic impact as dewy skinned, burgundy lipped models strut down the catwalk in looks reminiscent of iconic leading ladies. Kartal’s collection is consistent in its opulence, every little detail has been beautifully perfected, creating an AW14 collection that would be worthy of any Hollywood catwalk, past or present.

Having been in the industry for twenty years, working in production, marketing and design positions, Zeynep Kartal has put her many years of experience into practice and launched her own label, her debut show at Fashion Scout was absolutely divine. If this collection is anything to go by, Zeynep Kartal is one to watch for true glamour and sparkle.
